You can use your hands...

Tonight we are going to use our hands to practically help others less fortunate than us!

We are off to 0800 Hungry to open boxes, pack food or whatever (it's all easy stuff your baby sister could do & it's kinda fun doing it).

Meet @ 7pm tonight @ youth centre as usual. We will help out at 0800 Hungry for about an hour and then cruise home.

Hope to see you tonight!

Youth Alpha

Youth Alpha is running on Thursday nights 6:30pm to 8pm (starting with a free dinner!) at church.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to come along and build your faith & knowledge of God and what being a Christian is all about. This is also a great chance to ask a friend who may be searching about God and is keen to find out more.

If you wana cruise along... let Amy know and turn up on Thursday night!

(If you are thinking that going out Wednesday AND Thursday nights is too much... then I'd reccommend you come to Youth Alpha & skip youthgroup for the next while. This is a rare opportunity)
